Sonoma Coast Wine

 

The Sonoma Coast AVA is an extensive part of Sonoma County, California. It stretches between San Pablo Bay to Mendocino along the Pacific coast, east to the coastal ranges. The climate created by such close proximity to the Pacific Ocean is that of heavy rainfall, cool winds and heavy fog. Most of the vineyards are planted into the ridges, keeping them as far above the fogline as possible as well as maximizing their sun exposure. 
 
There are certain varietals that respond well to such conditions, particularly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but the region is also known for its Rieslings and Syrah. 
 
The Fort Ross AVA is included within the Sonoma Coast.
